Though it has all the trappings of a horror movie—buckets of gore, the occasional tense moment—Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is more or less a red-state-meets-blue-state comedy of manners. Two peaceful hillbillies try to renovate a vacation home in the wilderness and, through a series of increasingly bizarre miscommunications, a group of college kids on spring break believe that the hillbillies are trying to murder them. People start dying almost immediately. Alan Tudyk, adorable as always, sells his country bumpkin with a surprising intensity, and at 89 minutes, the film knows exactly when to quit.
